Protect the Granite State Senior Advisor Judy Reardon offered the following comment on today's developments:

From Reardon:  "Today's decision by Massachusetts to terminate its prior selection of Northern Pass for that state's Clean Energy RFP is yet another gut punch to a dying project.  After eight years, enough is enough.  It's long time for New Hampshire to move on from Northern Pass."
